Ramos's Poor English Speaking Skills Will Be The Downfall Of Spurs


It’s no wonder that Tottenham Hotspur are playing so abysmally this season. Have you heard Juande Ramos’s English? Seriously, if you were a player on the Spurs squad and you listened to Ramos speak, would you understand him, respect him and be motivated by him?

Listen to his Friday press conference below and you tell me.


The first voice is the journalist asking the question. The second person speaking is the translator, and the third voice is Spurs manager Juande Ramos.

How can Ramos effectively communicate with his Tottenham players when his English is so poor and, to be frank, he sounds effeminate? Sure, Gus Poyet is able to bridge the gap and is bilingual, but my concern is that Ramos’s poor English skills must be having an impact on the poor form of his side.

  1. After being at a club for one year with a full-time translator and teacher, I know I'd be a much better speaker of Spanish than Ramos is at English right now.

  2. We get it Chris. You hate us. Write about someone else. The objectivity that I always thought was your strength has turned into vitriol. And for whom? A mid-table wannabe.

  3. Chris, I don't hate Spurs. Far from it. But I call it as I see it. For all of the negative things I've written about Spurs. I've written plenty of positive articles too. The same applies to other teams.
